We’re very familiar with online slots from Realistic Games but now they’ve turned their attention to blackjack, the iconic casino game with the lowest house edge available. Blackjack Five Hand is certainly a good-looking example of the genre and, as the title suggests, you can play up to five hands simultaneously. Your aim is to obtain a card value of more than the dealer but not more than 21.
How It Works
The layout of this game will be familiar to anyone used to playing blackjack online or offline; the dealer’s area is at the top of the screen where the cards and chips are stored and the player’s area is the five card spaces arranged near the bottom. The main payout information is printed in the centre and these are standard blackjack terms.
The first thing to do is choose your chip level and the betting ranges from £1.00 to £2500 per hand. Place a chip on one or more of the betting areas when you know how many hands you want to play.
Now click ‘Deal’ and your cards will be distributed. The dealer’s hand will be checked for a potential blackjack (an Ace plus a card value of ten) after which your decisions begin. Depending on the cards dealt you have the following options:
- Hit – take another card
- Stand – take no further cards for that hand
- Double Down – double your bet and take one more card only
- Split – cards with similar values can be split into two hands and played separately
- Insurance – if the dealer is showing an Ace, you can pay extra for insurance which will pay back at 2/1 if the dealer has a blackjack
Once you’ve finished, the dealer plays his hand.The dealer stands on 17 or higher and when finished, your hands will be compared. Any blackjacks are paid out at 3/2, other wins at evens.
There’s a feeling of real quality to this game from the graphics and animations to the choice of voiceovers describing your game. Don’t forget to use blackjack basic strategy to ensure you reduce the house edge to the minimum 99.50%.
